Fantastic site and pub/restaurant

The Railway Inn
We have had a wonderful holiday at The Railway inn. The food at the pub is amazing (proper home cooked chips, which is very rare these days), the staff are lovely as are the owners who make you feel at home, they go above and beyond to please you. Plenty of walks for the dog, including the lake by the site. Very nice and clean facilities. Very spacious pitches. Secure gate so no need to worry about security. We visited Newark castle, and Lincoln castle and cathedral. We saw the Magna Carta too. We enjoyed it so much, we will be back again and again. It is so nice to find such a lovely place to stay. If I could give it a higher score I would do.

Great reak

The Railway Inn
The CL had recently changed hands on our visit in August 2021. The new owners could not do enough to make us welcome. The site is behind a great village pub with good reasonably priced food and friendly locals. I would recommend anyone seeking a quite break to look seriously at visiting here,

Not what we expected.

The Railway Inn
We booked for one night and when we arrived that morning the inn was closed so we called the number and spoke to a lady but she couldn’t help us or give us any information. Only carvery was available on Sunday lunchtime/afternoon and no food available in the evening. We were charged £15 for the night but the website states £8 and does not mention the additional £7! We were unable to locate the recycling facilities, the metal gate to the field was difficult to open and close and the broken lock sat on top of it! On the plus side we were told there was a lake behind the site by another camper, and the trains make it interesting. We would not recommend this site due to lack of communication and the overpriced fee.

Great site, warm welcome, lovely pub and food and easy access to Lincoln.

The Railway Inn
Great site, warm welcome, lovely pub and food and easy access to Lincoln. We stayed here on 4 July this year for the first time. Sites and pubs had just reopened after lockdown and we wanted to go somewhere fairly close, for a night to see if we would be comfortable venturing out during the Pandemic. We needn’t have worried as Carly and the Railway Inn had everything well organised to ensure all measures were taken to keep everyone safe. We returned last night and took advantage of the site, pub and food again. We “stole” our Daughter’s dog again as he loved it there on 4th. The site was a little busier this time with more dogs on site so Ronnie didn’t quite get the run of the field again but he still loved his walks around the lake. We had a lovely meal at the pub and settled back in the van for a lovely sleep before breakfast in the Motorhome and another walk around the lake. We love Lincoln and the Railway Inn and will be back again (with Ronnie obviously).

Great Railway Inn

The Railway Inn
Easy to find, lovely little site, very friendly welcome, no problem with the gate. Trains not a problem for me as live close to a railway line. Foot path runs along side site so easy for dog walkers, as this is a public footpath others use it and sadly do not always clean up after their dogs. I had an evening meal Saturday with a drink and coffee and on Sunday a Small Sunday lunch with a drink along with site fee the whole lot was £35 for the weekend. Overall very pleased, unable to comment of facilities used electric hook up but have own toilet and wash facilities. Well worth it.
